It’s black pants or jeans day if you are playing along today!

Thursday Thoughts

O.k., my thoughts today are all about Rothy’s shoes.  You can’t swing a stick without seeing ads for these shoes.  They offer ballet flats, pointy toe flats, loafers, and sneakers.  I was intrigued.  

I performed some girl math and determined that with some Christmas money, the $32 I got from cleaning out my closet, the fact that I used three library books instead of purchasing any books so far this year, and making dinner one night that I really wanted takeout that I could buy them.  

I did get a $20 off coupon code – just put in your email address on the website.  And it was free shipping.  I do wear flats a lot and I chose the ballet flats in the color mink.  

After the coupon code and including shipping they came out to $111.  Ouch!  But, I’m trying to shop smarter and buy things that will last and that are high quality.  

They are made from recycled water bottles.  The material of the shoe is very unique.  It’s extremely soft and it’s hard to believe that they used to be water bottles.  I currently have ten water bottles in my recycling bin at school.  Is that enough for a pair of shoes and why are they so expensive if they are just water bottles?  


They were packaged in a non wasteful slim box.  They came a day early and they only took about 3 days after I placed my order.  

I wore them to school and they felt so good on my feet!  I ordered my regular flat size, but if you are doing pointy toe you have to go up a half to a whole size.  

I will say that my feet sweat a bit in them and I think they will make my feet stink.  I will look into some sort of odor eater or spray.  You are supposed to be able to throw these in the washer but I don’t see myself doing that.  

The Verdict:  Rothy’s has no idea who I am – this is simply my opinion.  But, if anyone from Rothy’s is reading this, hit me up.  I love them.  They feel like they were woven by angels.  My feet were so happy.  

If you are a regular flats person I would say they could be worth it.  Some people can’t wear flats because they need more arch support.  

Does anyone own Rothy’s?

    1. I see that a lot in my Facebook ads and on other blogs I read. I guess I shouldn’t have assumed that everyone has heard of them! I don’t think you can wear flats – is that correct? Check out the patterns on their website though. They are really cute.


  1. I have been wanting to try the but the fact that my feet sweat a lot has deterred me. Give us an update after a few months!!


  2. I happen to be wearing black pants today. I feel like part of the in crowd now! Mind you I’d never wear these things out of the house but still 🙂
    I’ve never heard of those shoes! Trends take longer to get to Canada. They are super cute. Also, I adore your math!
